NEW ORLEANS, La. (KALB) - The New Orleans Saints have claimed former New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins.

On Friday, the Giants waived Jenkins after he made an inappropriate remark to a fan on Twitter.

Jenkins's claim won't be made official until Tuesday because the Saints have yet to play their Week 15 game.

The Saints will pay Jenkins two weeks of salary at $597,000 per week (under $1.2 million) along with a 2020 contract that is set to pay him $11.25 million.
